The world’s largest Buddhist temple and one of Indonesia’s biggest attractions is Unesco World Heritage–listed Borobudur Temple. It’s built from two million stone blocks in the form of a massive symmetrical stupa, literally wrapped around a small hill. Standing on a 118m by 118m base, its six square terraces are topped by three circular ones, with four stairways leading up through carved gateways to the top. Viewed from the air, the structure resembles a colossal three-dimensional tantric mandala (symbolic circular figure).
